Leopard Vs Bird: Hornbill Escapes Jumping Cat’s Clutches

A hungry leopard snatches an unsuspecting bird out of the air – before losing its grip and allowing its prey to make a miraculous escape.

Shot in June 2015, the dramatic footage was taken by US tourist Gabriella Kurz, 22, in Kruger National Park, South Africa. The video shows a juvenile big cat stalking two large hornbills before launching an audacious aerial attack and grabbing one of the birds as it starts to fly away. But to the astonishment of the watching safari group, the feathered animal managed to wrestle free and fly to safety.
